What if you had plans in 2020 that didn’t come to be? #AllHandsRaised Today I’m speaking to a common Q in my DMs on how to think about having not made a business or goal happen in this wild year of 2020. Using my own experiences of working out, meditation & organization with my Elegant Excellence Goals Journal. This is the conversation we should have every year before New Years to remember to both focus on & have grace for the one component that means more than any app or tool for our success:
How do you choose between goals? Avoid overwhelm, biting off more than you can chew? But also not have FOMO (fear of missing out) that you might chose the wrong goal, regret it, be sad you can’t have both? Today I’m sharing my signature principle for goal setting in a way that brings all our dreams and projects together. Instead of competing against each other, leaving us unfulfilled and disappointed. They work together, to give us momentum towards the life we really want.
There is so much power in saying and writing our dreams. In today’s special episode I walk you through delightful and insightful prompts to uncover what lights up your head and heart; has in your past and will in the future. Pour a cup, grab a pen if you can, and enjoy! Then be sure to save your seat for our Elegant Excellence Goals Journal Reveal Party or snag your journal as soon as the doors are open! http://elegantexcellencejournal.com
I’ve identified five elements of our personality that trip us up in dreaming gracefully, spaciously, authentically. Which of these descriptions sounds most like you? - THE STATS DREAMER - THE SIDEKICK DREAMER - THE SUPERSIZE DREAMER - THE SPLIT DREAMER - THE SLOTHFUL DREAMER https://elegantexcellencejournal.com/
Do you hate conflict, arguments, feel exhausted by all the tension in our cultural conversations lately? Let’s consider how we can have healthier conversations whether around the election, holidays, or anytime in our lives. This isn’t just about convincing someone or avoiding fights. The ultimate goal is that we feel more peaceful and positive ourselves, regardless of the other person’s tone or response. Would love to hear your thoughts https://www.instagram.com/hilaryrushford/
Lightness, joy & happy topics feel in order after so many heavy world events this year. I’m often asked if I have a blog post on my musical theatre story: how I booked a Broadway tour, the Radio City Rockettes, & all that jazz. Sharing some fun (okay and emotional, I keep getting choked up!) stories along with inspiring takeaways about chasing our dreams and supporting those in our lives as they do the same.

What is in between laziness and productivity? This is the question I’ve been pondering myself during quarantine. And in some ways the core of a more sustainable lifestyle of rest I’ve been cultivating since a sabbatical in 2016. Reading the book “How to Do Nothing” by Jenny Odell this year has given me further language for this unique journey, as well as clarity as to why it is truly imperative for our society and humanity that we choose to embrace it.
